Open Cheating

So, for a Leicester fan I guess the most interesting part of last nights game was where Pep made a bee line for Chilwell and Tielemans after the final whistle.

His conversations with them looked totally different than with all our other players? It actually annoyed me a little bit, as it’s disruptive to our club whatever happens in the window.

What do we think he said, and do we think Man City will make a move for them. Chilwell I’m actually fine with if we can get a good replacement, but Tielemans? Come on Man City, seriously? Have you not got enough gifted attacking midfielders already? Beware the ides of Mahrez and come back to where you’re enjoying your football!

Anyway, it’s not so much we might lose players, that’s part and parcel of the game, it was the public way in which it looked like our players were being courted last night that annoyed me.

Strange one.

Agree Joby. Chilwell seems to be calm and composed on the ball, can play some neat and quick passes but still gets caught out of position too regularly and hasn’t got a final ball yet.

I can see him equally stepping on in a couple of years or stagnating and “doing a drinkwater” at a big club. I certainly wouldn’t be crying if he were to leave for big bucks.

Hoping Bournemouth haven’t been watching Gray over the last season and come back in for him in the summer.

So you call him a cheater and blame him without knowing what he actually said?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Didn’t call him a cheater, or blame him for anything. I just asked what people’s views were on I’m openly snogging Chilwell after the game. More amorous than Pepe le Pew!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The title of your article is called open cheating.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah. That’s just the hook isn’t it, red top style. Then when you read the article you realise it has nothing to do with the sensationalist headline. Cunning.

Interesting. I didn't see the incident so can't really comment on that aspect of it.

On Chilwell then let's hope we get about £75m for him before anyone realises he hasn't got a final ball. He's currently a long way behind someone like Robertson at Liverpool. Hopefully he stays and develops his game with us.

Tielemans can consider all his options. He wouldn't get into Man City's team and is probably not ready to carry the midfield at somewhere like Man Utd and would be under immediate pressure there. We seem just the right size club for someone at his stage of development and he would get a lot of games here. But, as we know, he'd probably find it difficult to turn down if a CL club comes in for him even if he would be learning his football from the bench.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
We'd take him at Spurs.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
difference is, Spurs don't have any money.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I think we will surprise a few people this transfer window.

To be fair you almost certainly will.

I expect you to make some signings. That, in itself, will come as a surprise to many.

I haven’t seen enough of Tiernay to really know, but it does seem like he is highly rated.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Be in no doubt we rate Tierney as high as VVD he is that good.

However, right now he is fckd by playing 70 games a season for 2+ years. A hip problem and a double hernia needed. The latter fixable with high confidence. The former nobody knows - keeps seeing specialists but we keep playing him in big games when it is 100% clear he is currently fckd.

Think he has 4 contracted years left so we'd be looking for big bucks.

Thanks for the info. Sounds like he’s class but could be broken.

Goes down in the ‘risk’ category then.

Could have just been offering kind words like he did with Redmond. I don't see Pep going all out to sign him!

What was more disturbing was Klopp ringing Ashley Barnes offering him a 3 year deal if he scored the winner and won them the league...
